Here we are at day 5 of my own scrapbooking challenge…“to complete an unfinished layout or create a new one from scratch every day for the next 30 days”. Check out this first post here to get some more information on my children’s scrapbooks *day one*
I don’t have a layout to show you today, but heaps of preparation was done so I’m saying that my efforts count 🙂
I was finding that I was getting muddled about where I was up to and so took the time to plan my missing layouts and print my photos. I find this hard as I get so sidetracked by all the gorgeous photos and memories!
I have a little PictureMate Epson Printer (which I love but they are discontinued) so I can print my photos off as soon as I have found them. This is a game changer for me, I get so much more done this way, I would lose so much momentum by having to wait until I could get to a photo printer.
As they were printed I added their dates onto a post it note and then slid the photo and date into the appropriate empty page protector. This keeps my layouts in order so I can easily see where I need to catch up.
As I see photos that I want to use I can often match them up with a layout I’ve pinned to my Scrapbooking Pinterest Board. If a layout seems perfect I’ll print it out and pop it in with the photo in the page protector (I won’t remember which one I liked otherwise). It saves time when I got to put the page together.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
